Hand washing Can Be FUN!
There are always public concerns regarding germs, the common cold and the safety of the very young, the very old and those with suppressed or compromised immune systems. The simplest and most effective way to help protect these individuals and the general public is ensuring that proper hand-washing procedures are being utilized.
Much of this training begins at home, so we wanted to provide some support for parents and kids to help promote proper hand-washing procedures.
Here's what the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention suggest to help:
- Teach kids the five easy steps for hand-washing:
- The key times to wash hands:
- after using the bathroom
- before eating
- You can find ways to make it fun, like making up your own hand-washing song or turning it into a game.
